Living with Wildlife offers half- or one-day Snake Awareness Workshops for property owners and residents in communities which would benefit from this kind of training. These workshops provides answers to many of the most common questions; they teach participants how to recognise snake hazards and what to do about them, the options for dealing with snakes, and the procedure to use if an accident happens.

The Snake Awareness Workshops are an expanded version of the well- received seminars organised since 2003 in South Australia by the Mount Pleasant Natural Resource Centre at Mount Pleasant, Angaston, Mount Barker, Williamstown, Gawler and Virginia. Other NRCs have arranged similar seminars at Normanville, Murray Bridge, Tanunda, Goolwa and Norton Summit.
Live snakes are an essential feature of every workshop.

Active participation is encouraged, under safe and controlled conditions.

Notes covering the main points are provided.

Information about snakes and their behaviours is based on the most recent scientific studies.

Every workshop has a maximum of 20 places.
